now is the moment to rise above that cynicism and show the american people that we can still do big things and so he will make the case to congressional leaders that we must reject the politics of least resistance and take on this critical challenge. joining us now is the senate's top republican who will be a key participant in today's talks. senator mitch mcconnell. welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> glad to be here. >> let's start with what happened and from your perspective, where do things stand now ahead of this meeting tonight at the white house. >> well, unfortunately, as the speaker said, they are insisting on the white house and congressional democrats, insisting on really big tax increases as a condition to do anything on the spending side. bret, we believe the president was right back in december when he signed a two-year extension of the current tax rates of raising taxes in the middle of this economic situation we're in is a terrible idea. i mean, just look at the unemployment figures last friday. all the arguments the president used in december still work today. th
"morning joe." now time for "the daily rundown". >>> big disappointment on the job front. employment stalled, unemployment rises to 9.2%, stock futures dropping big-time on the news. the president will address the numbers later this morning. >>> no deal yet, but president obama and congressional leaders will work all weekend and instead of barbs we're hearing words like "constructive" and "productive." optimism abounds as a deal is truly in the works. both sides seem prepared for seergs concessions. what do these jobs numbers mean and will they hold up a deal as it gets rid of a lot of other issues at this point? >>> and with outside groups set to pour millions into the 2012 race, what's an incumbent pro president to do? is fighting fire with fire the answer? it's friday, june 8, 2012. >>> also this morning, waiting the final shuttle launch. will weather clear in time? and we've honored a departed friend you've invited into your living rooms for decades. >>> this jobs report, we thought the big news today would be the debt talks, but a stunning jobs report, gain of just 1
not be willing or able to, seemingly, take on big tasks. >> that happened all this week. kristin is live at the white house. a lot of talk. we're one day closer to that deadline. what can we expect to hear from the president in the next hour? >> hi there, richard. we expect the president to continue to push to get a big deal. what's a big deal? about $4 trillion in deaf sigz reductions over the next decade. at the end of last week, it looked like he and speaker boehner were moving towards the same page in terms of trying to get a big deal. that fell apart over the weekend. so we expect the president to resume calls for a big deal to say now is the time to seize the moment. there will be political pain on both sides. what he means by that is the democrats will have to come to the table over entitlements, making small changes to things like social security and medicare and the republicans will need to come to the table in terms of rolling back tax break for wealthy corporations and americans. as you said, richard, he's going to hammer this point that they will continue to work until they g
with the big debt talk. congressional leadering returning to the table this morning, after the grand bargain broke down last saturday and a tense 75-minute meeting last night failed to move negotiations forward. at 11:00 this morning, the president will hold a news conference to press publicly for his big deal. yesterday, his top economic adviser said the u.s. is out of options. >> we make 80 million checks a month to americans, 55 million people on social security benefits, millions more americans on veterans benefits, medicare, medicaid. people who supply our troops in combat. on august 2nd, we're left with cash on hand and the cash we take in. there is no credible way to give congress more time. there's no constitutional option, there's no delay option, there's no creative financial option. they have to act by the 2nd. >> no constitutional option, 14th amendment, off the table. here's what we know, debt talks appear to be at an impasse and here's why. the president is still pushing a big deal. democrats say the fallback plan, this $2 trillion plus package that was partially negotiated in
economic soundness to this country. that take as big deal. a lot of pain. democrats are upset the president talked about pain on their side of the ail and republicans are saying no way will we give tax relief to middle income americans. they want to continue tax relief to the wealthy. everyone agrees a number around $4 trillion will make a serious debt on our deficit. it will send a statement to the world that the u.s. has gotten ahold of their fiscal problems and they are moving forward. it will give confidence to the american people that we can move forward to bring economic soundness. that's the president's commitment. >> 6:00 on the east coast. welcome to "morning joe." look at that nice live look at times square. joe is looking spify today. he went shopping. it is monday, july 11th. >> i don't know what that means. >> we have msnbc -- well, yes. this is unusual. we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle, john heilemann. what's so funny? >> yeah, what's so funny? i don't get it. he's back. >> we can't get him to leave. we have "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner and in washington
leaders are digging in on the big sticking point of taxes ahead of tomorrow's white house summit. chuck todd is nbc's chief white house correspondent and host of "the daily rundown." chuck, we've heard a lot from republicans. today at the bloomberg breakfast it was said that any tax measures had to be revenue positive over the long run that could be ten years out. eventually have to contribute toward deficit reduction. that is not what republican senator john cornyn was saying exactly the opposite what he said on our show yesterday that it has to be revenue neutral. how does the president hope to bridge this devoid? >> reporter: well, you know, they have an interesting tactic here. they believe and frankly behind the scenes so do house republicans believe it will be easier to sell a larger deal that has some things in it that nobody's crazy about on certain sides. whether some trims to entitlements on the democratic side or some of these revenue proposals on the republican side that if it's a large deal, $2.5 trillion to $4 trillion and maybe even $6 trillion in the out years meaning th
of the big deal, speaker boehner has suggested to sunset upper income tax cuts that tax code would be rewritten but last night he told president obama and called it off. he released a written statement that read in part, white house will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure. they suggested the disappointing jobs report in june was a game changeser. >> it ought to insent visa us to do a big package without raising taxes but we're hoping the president is not thinking he was as six months ago and he was making the arguments that raising taxes in the middle of this recession or slowdown, whatever you want to call it was a bad idea. >> reporter: secretary geithner says $2.5 trillion out of spending alone would unfairly impact the elderly and middle-class and also be bad for the economy and slow down job growth. >> heather: we'll see what happens. thank you very much. >> gregg: the clock is ticking for a debt limit deal to be struck and maybe faster than many people think. white house aids say a deal
14% in taxes and corporations pay 0%, and you raise more, you can have us a big deal here. >> they're still drawing lines in the sand that seem insurmountable with weeks to go before the august 2 deadline, congressional leaders are heading back to the white house today for yet another meeting to reach a deal on raising the country's debt ceiling. officials familiar with the negotiations say majority leader eric cantor dominated yesterday's meeting. cantor laid out what was agreed upon in the deficit reduction talks led by vice president biden, specifically $2 trillion in cuts in the next decade. the figure includes $1 trillion in discretionary spending. $200 billion in medicare and medicaid. and $200 billion to $300 billion on saved interest in the debt. >> so the military -- the military, i guess, comes in in the mandatory discretionary spending. >> military. >> sources familiar with the talks add that after the presentation president obama said the two sides might be able to reach consensus on roughly $1 pp 7 trillion. but there are still some issues to resolve. at one point in t
scale, he tried, he went for something big and failed. >> boehner is clearly on board for something. but i think right now the other four lders are trying to figure out is this politically where we want to go and can we assemble the votes for something of this magnitude. >> we conclude by turning to the n.b.a. and n.f.l. labor disputes with sally jenkins of the "washington post" and kevin blackistone of the university of maryland and espn. >> maybe it's time for fans to reassess why they're spending like crack addicts on the four major sports when there are lots of other affordable, available things to watch for a lot less money that appreciate the fans perhaps a little bit better and who value the fan more properly. >> with the n.f.l., it's very much reflective to me of what we're going through in america right now where in 201 you've had record profits in corporate america yet corporate america points to the economy, says it niece bad shape and pois to unions and workers and asks for concessions. that's the exact same thing going on in the n.f.l. when you talk about $9 billion in
very big, very substantial to bring our long-term deficits down over time. we have to do that in a way that's good for the economy for more support because the economy is healing from the recession. it's going to require both sides to compromise. president's bringing leaders together again at the white house this evening to try to figure out how to move forward. >> what's he actually saying? because you're hearing boehner saying they're demanding tax increases, we're not going to do that. they've also said you were pedalling a bid on whether to cut entitlement programs like medicare or social security. what's the fact? >> that latter thing is not true. the president is standing tough. he is willing to do very, very difficult things. >> like what? on medicare? >> like getting substantial savings from the budget, across the budget. defense, the rest of government, even medicare/medicaid over the long term, there are things we can do responsibly to save money in those programs and we have to do that to bring the deficits under control. but to do that, we have to have some shared sacrifice
, but this is a grave moment for the country. we need to do something very big, very substantial to bring our long-term deficits down over time. we have to do that in a way that's good for the economy for more support because the economy is healing from the recession. it's going to require both sides to compromise. president's bringing leaders together again at the white house this evening to try to figure out how to move forward. >> what's he actually saying? because you're hearing boehner saying they're demanding tax increases, we're not going to do that. they've also said you were back pedaling a bit on whether to cut entitlement programs like medicare or social security. what's the fact? >> that latter thing is not true. the president is standing tough. he is willing to do very, very difficult things. >> like what? on medicare? >> like getting substantial savings from the budget, across the budget. defense, the rest of government, even medicare/medicaid over the long term, there are things we can do responsibly to save money in those programs and we have to do that to bring the deficits under
, welcome to "the early show" here on a monday morning. i'm chris wragge. >> and i'm erica hill. >> big sports news this weekend. >> huge. >> you had to seeing it, everybody is talking about it. women's world cup soccer, after one of the most thrilling girls in the history of soccer, penalty kicks, ally krieger. tied up. everyone saying lights out, it's over, they're going over. they tie it up, shoot-out they take it 5-2 over brazil and now in the semifinals. >> they're going to meet france on twewednesday. just fantastic to watch. i love watching the players, how excited they are. brazil no joke when it comes to soccer. >> 12 years to the day after brandy chastain the shirt -- you remember that. >> i do. i do. >>> first we want to touch on yes, the debt ceiling. starting to sound like a broken record. the deadline is looming for raising the debt ceiling. there were more talks at the white house on sunday. still no resolution. president obama told lawmakers be prepared to meet again today and every day until a deal is reached. cbs news senior white house correspondent bill plante has th
we are expecting what i think are unreasonable expectations. i'm a big believer in the jury system. i dedicated my professional career to it and i think it is the best system there is. >> bill: there is no other system. >> with that people have to go back and say what is realistic. prove beyond a reasonable doubt is not to a mat mathematical certainty. it is to a reasonable doubt. look at what is reasonable here. look at that cause of death. is there any reasonable doubt that this girl was murdered? >> bill: no. >> whether it was a premeditated murder or her mother was trying to quiet her. >> bill: if the little girl drown as i think one of anthony's attorneys said happened, you don't put duct tape over a drowned girl's mouth so that is out the window. you are not responsible for the the defense lawyers, you are not. these people introduce all kinds of crazy stuff they couldn't back up like i said in the talking points memo. weren't you offended as an american who wants justice for caylee anthony? weren't you offended by that? i was offended by that. >> a lot of the things that jose b
says she manages the migraine with medication and is otherwise healthy. with all of that said, big news out of texas today, the gor rick perry who said he recently feels a calling to national politics has now gotten green light from key constituent, his wife. >> as my wife was talking to me and says get out of your comfort zone. yeah, being governor of texas is a great job. but sometimes you are called to step in to the fray. >> reporter: no word on a timetable yet. unclear whether perry will participate in the straw poll. his aides here tried to respect event facilities and were told they missed the deadline now they're pulling back resources. perhaps he won't participate the straw poll but there is a chance he could be on the debate stage a few days beforehand. >> bret: a lot of flirting he going on. thank you. we'll talk about it in the panel. the man charged with the 2009 fort hood shooting rampage major nidal hasan was arraigned today and faces 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. the prosecution is seeking the death penalty. we'll show y
with the story. and helping out ordinary folks . they are going to be tied when it comes . to get out of the big hole we are in, he will go after waste and tax breaks and nothing is off of the table. it would be nice if we can and it is millionaires and billionaires and are for hedge fund managers and corporate jet owners and oil and gas companies pulling in huge profits without our help. we'll have to make deeper cuts somewhere else. republican senator dan coats . mitch daniels said the government should follow daniel's lead. he turned things aroundd by cutting taxes . paying down debts . get it focused on. >> the president and democrats in congress recognize that their game plan is not working. it is time to acknowledge that more government and higher taxes is not the answer to our problem. it is time for bold action and a new plan to address our current crisis. >> and since it is the 4th of july weekend. both touched on the american spirit. senator coats wanted to make sure that the country is in good enough shape . all sides need to harness their love for the country and that we are going to
, hi, there, thomas. it seemed like forget hope for getting a big deal done in the arena of $4 tril john lion in tt decade was dwindling, but republicans would not accept a deal that big and they wanted $2 trillion over the next decade, but as you mentioned president obama came out today swinging, upping the ante saying he does indeed want a big deal done and if not now, when? and he essentially tried to assume the position of the adult in the room calling on the lawmakers to rip off the band-aids and eat the peas and call to action for democrats and republicans and calling the democrats to come to the table for entitlement reforms, and the republicans for rolling back the tax breaks for wealthy americans and big corporations, and it seemed like at the last of last week, the president and the speaker boehner may have been moving in the same direction, but then speaker boehner said we cannot support anything that looks like a tax increase. and so the president addressed that in his conversation today, and he said that any tax brea increases would not take effect immediately. >> when
: that is not the problem. the problem is the mentality of people saying, monica, the government owes me. how big a problem do you think that is? >> entitlements are narcotics. this is why the left loves to expand the entitlement program in america and they instituted a massive new program called obama care which is essentially socialized medicine. once people get aticted to the narcotic of the entitlement, social security, medicare, medicaid, we have a whole array of entitlements, you get addicted to it, it is difficult to take it away. >> bill: what is the government's responsibility in bad economic times to feed people through food stamps. they have explode. >> we have 47 million americans now on food stamps which is a record breaking number that is heart breaking. >> bill: is that a nasca narco. >> we is so many drk including the food programs and benefits for the poor. >> bill: is that a narcotic? >> i will tell you why. it creates a culture and pattern of victimization. >> most people want to work and do not want a handout. most people want to compete and be in the game. they don't want to sit back a
that would have reduced spending by $4 trillion over the next decade. but if mr. boehner wanted to do a big deal, the majority leader eric cantor threw cold water all over it saying that the congressional republicans would reject any revenue increases as part of the deal. as for the president, he said that he is willing to take political hits from his own party, but not at the expense of struggling americans. >> i am prepared to take on significant heat from my party to get something done. i expect the other side should be willing to do the same thing if we are going to actually solve the problem, there are finite number of ways to do it. if you don't have revenues, it means you are putting more of a burden on the people who can least afford it. that's not fair. >> nbc's kristen welker is live at the white house. kristen, the president spoke about his willingness to take in his words significant heat from his own party in reaching a compromise, and he was clearly suggesting that the republicans must do the same, but will they? >> well, it is an interesting question at this point the two sid
an then the big cooldown for the weekend. >>> 7:12. will president obama replace joe biden? there's new talk about who will -- about who the president will replace as vice president. >>> and the duke and duchess will be visiting the rich and famous in l.a. this weekend. there's a reason why they will be spending time on skid row as well. >>> >>> good morning. temperatures will really drop according to those by the coast -- not according. i don't know where that came from. but you know what i mean. by the coast sand bay inland -- coast and the bay and inland. >>> hot rumors around the white house. now, aides to president obama say joe biden is thinking about replacing -- say president obama is thinking about replacing joe biten. there's been speculation that he would be replaced with -- with andrew cuomo. president obama's'ss are saying here's nothing to -- president obama's aides are saying there's nothing to 9 rumors. >>> scott macfarlane is live in our washington, d.c. newsroom to explain how the cuts could affect transportation cuts here in the bay area. >> reporter: congress considering major
. the indication that we're getting now is that this is a big deal, that this is going to be very large, and that everything is going to be on the table as far as bringing the corporate tax rates down, closing tax loopholes, but also cuts in entitlement programs, medicare, medicaid, possibly talking about social security and changing the way it works in the long term. these are big items that obviously could not get done legislatively before the august 2nd deadline. if there was some agreement reached between the leaders to raise the debt ceiling and agree to the framework by which they are going to tackle these big ticket items, that would be a significant thing. and it seemed like both parties were so far apart it will be interesting to see through the weekend if there can be some negotiated deal on a big framework. martha: it's interesting, bret because we've heard a little bit of what has come out of the preliminary discussions that vice president biden was part of. it seemed as though in those discussions they would talk big dollar figures although they wouldn't talk about specific
'll keep a close eye on baby jamichael, a big kid. that's it for me on "wake-up call." "american morning" begins right now. >> good morning to you. i'm kiran chetry. a lot going on. let's get you caught up. the end of the line for the "news of the world." the british tabloid shutting down after sunday's edition after new reports that the paper reportedly tried to hack the phones of 9/11 victims. >>> a deal to raise america's debt ceiling still out of reach. talks continue today with the president warning we have ten days left to get an agreement or risk default on this "american morning." >>> and good monday morning to you. start of another week here on "american morning." it is july 11th. nice to see you back. >> great to see you. >> the shuttle went off on the first try. >> i couldn't believe it. we were all thinking the weather was horrible but it went off. can't get the three of us together a whole lot. christine is off. >> summer vacation. >> no deal on raising the debt ceiling. last night talks at the white house fizzled out. president obama making it clear with 23 days to go befor
it could be a big day for our whole entire country. >> and the news is whether we've got a deal or not. shortly after ten o'clock last night. harry reid said you know, i was going to have everybody show up in the mid feel the night and take a vote at 1 a.m. and he received word from the white house that apparently, the white house and this really hacks him off, you know, because it kind of bypasses him, and former speaker pelosi, dealing directly with mitch mcconnell, joe biden 6789 it sounds like they've got a deal, and close to a deal and some of of the frame work as well to talk about it. >> yeah, it looks like it's been going back and forth and take a look, it looks like debt ceiling increase, 1.2 trillion to 2.4 last night last through the night and living in my office, as high as 2.8 trillion dollars in debt ceiling increases, spending cuts have to be about the same amount commensurate. >> dollar for dollar. >> at least if not more. >> and guys, there's a little bit of wrangling whether or not that balanced budget amendment that john boehner needed so badly to get the house to vo
known and they talk about it a lot in the market, and is it getting big r bigger. >> the last time we heard about it is when he bought the "wall street journal," and they said that buying into the troubled newspaper sector is a bad idea and now newspapers like "news of the world" are shuttered and parts of the business and analysts love fox news and fox network and bskyb who he wants to own the rest of it which is off of the table now because of to scandal, but if they can concentrate on the high performing assets, they are okay in the long run. news corp is not going to allow the company to be hurt in the long run, but the newspaper division, clearly wounded. >> and they could have problems going forward, because yahoo!'s daniel gross did an interesting column on this and he said that the hit to the credibility will create a different freedom for working there and harder for places that the murdoch companies own to hire good journlgists, because to get them to come over after this is that you will have to pay them extra, and more to sort of deal with the reputational problems of the

with the debt ceiling being raised, no real big agreement on spending and taxes. all that's left now is about a week of political posturing. plus what would happen politically if no deal was reached and the u.s. does default? would voters blame the president for a faltering economy or hold republicans responsible for refusing to make a deal? the answer to that could determine who wins the 2012 election. also, let's go to the videotape. michelle bachmann's husband denying that he ever referred to gays as barbarians, despite the tape that indicates differently, referring to gays as barbarians. we have the full tape on that, and that tops our 2012 coverage tonight. and the drip, drip, drip of the rupert murdoch scandal continues. first, rebecca brooks, the head of newspaper operations on the other side of the pond resigned. and late this afternoon, we learned the ceo of dow jones, which publishes murdoch's "the wall street journal" here in america is stepping down. can murdoch himself stop the scandal completely overwhelming his empire? findly, kumar, as in harold and kumar, is leaving the white
